    I love that this is an option. What a wonderful way to give back your body to nature in a way that is environmentally friendly. It's a beautiful recognition of the circle of life.

    As per usual, Catholic leadership's objections to this harmless (in fact, helpful) individual choice are wrong-headed and silly.

    "In the letter, Domingo likened natural organic reduction to methods of disposal of livestock, “not as a means of human burial.” "

    For me, this speaks volumes, but then christians think humans are of greater inherent worth than the rest of the animal kingdom. A dead body is a dead body, the species is irrelevant.

    I wouldn't call that natural. :D

    Why not just bury the person in traditional way? Much more natural and ecological.
